If your idea of an adventure is sitting on the left end of the couch instead of the right; today’s Groupon will push your limits without throwing you in the deep end – well actually, it will, but you’ll have an oxygen tank. Experience a thorough introduction to scuba when you pay R199 for a scuba diving course with Divetek Johannesburg.
Whether you’ve always meant to learn how to dive, need a good old adventure or simply want to find Nemo, today’s Groupon will open up an underwater world of possibilities. Started in 1984 as a simple Scuba retail shop, Divetek have grown to be a national distributer of scuba equipment and now scuba courses. With a reputation for taking land-dwelling dullards and transforming them into flipper-footed fish-people in a matter of minutes, Divetek are as serious about scuba as they are knowledgeable.
Because you have yet to develop your flipper feet, the course begins with a 30-minute lecture at the Divetek Johannesburg office; a seminar covering all the do’s and don’ts to make sure you know your scuba safety like the back of your fins. Once you’re feeling the spirit of scuba deep down in your fishy sole, take a jump into the deep end and enjoy a two-hour session of scuba-fun in an indoor heated pool.
If you’ve been planning your dream tropical getaway, but don’t know how to dive or you’ve always felt like a mermaid without the fins, then grab today’s opportunity by the gills and learn a skill that will stay with you forever. If you’re shaking like a scaredy-cat-fish, don’t worry – if you follow the rules, listen and learn then everything should go swimmingly.
Scuba fact: It’s been said that dollhouse fish don’t care for scuba divers because they reminds them of a floating bag of beans with flippers.
